Our COVID-19 Response Project

The outbreak of coronavirus and its associated challenges have caused a significant toll on people all over the world especially children in street situations and their families. As an NGO working closely with children in street situations in Ghana, we are very much concerned about the welfare of these children and their families in this difficult times.

Ghana’s partial lockdown in Accra, Kasoa and Kumasi where most children in street situations and their families can be found, brought to light the challenges street children encounter. The streets which is their source of hope for survival did not contain them anymore. Many of them cried for help, some were lucky to get support from the government, individuals and other organizations. Children in street situations continue to struggle for their daily bread after Ghana’s partial lockdown.

As we continue to observe social distancing with our schools, drop in centers and other centers closed, children in street situations and their families have become more vulnerable.

With our partner SendaSmile e.v and Rotary Club of Accra-Airport we are supporting children in street situations and other community folks in vulnerable communities through our coronavirus response project: ‘’ Wash Coronavirus Away from James Town’’. We are embarking on a massive education on coronavirus in the heart of Accra where we work using our indigenous Twi and Ga dialects as well as English Language.

With Support from the Accra Metropolitan Assembly AMA, Ga Mashie Development Agency GAMADA, and Ashiedu Keteke Sub Metro we have already reached out to Kinka, Ussher, Korle Wokon, Korle Dudor, Mudor, Ngleshie and Mmlista electoral areas. Assembly members in these electoral areas joined us to distribute 2000 face masks and also stationed 50 veronica buckets and washing soaps at vantage points.

Speaking to the Acting Chairman of the Ashiedu Keteke Submetro, Mr. Seth Raymond Annan Tettey, appealed to other organizations to join in the fight against coronavirus. Mr. Tettey was grateful to SCEF and its partner Sendasmile e.v for reaching out to the community.

Additionally The Rebecca Foundation through Chance for Children, godparents and individuals, we are providing 100 packages of food items to children in street situations and their families. Every package contains rice, spaghetti, sardine and tinned tomatoes.

Stepping up this project, we are moving our Wash Coronvirus Away project to Accra Central. We would be at Old Fadama, timber market, art centre, Kantamanto and areas in Accra Central. We would be distributing 50 more veronica buckets and 8000 face masks. Other Personal Protective equipment (PPEs) such as hand sanitizers and hand washing soaps will also not be left out.

Join us make our communities free from coronavirus.
